NEW YORK: First Solar, a solar energy company, hired Ted Meyer as VP of global corporate communications, effective September 13.
In this new position, Meyer will oversee more than 20 communications professionals globally, and will relocate to First Solar's Tempe, AZ headquarters.
"I'll be overseeing communications efforts globally, including the external communications, employee communications, and marketing communications groups," Meyer told PRWeek.
Meyer was most recently director and head of communications at Deutsche Bank, and will leave that position effective September 6. Deutsche Bank is searching for a replacement, looking both internally and externally, Meyer said.
"In the interim," Meyer added, "each of my direct reports—from brand communications, internal communications, and media relations—will continue to run those areas and jointly oversee the overall communications effort."
